Greatly Ashamed

I have always been suspicious of national politicians of whatever party, and their pious claims to have the public's best interests at heart, and to be working for "freedom and democracy for all".

But today, I am exceedingly jaded, revolted and disgusted by the things being done in my country's name under this present, unbelievable administration. I keep hoping it is all just a nightmare from which we will all awake. I take solace that I did not vote for the Fascists now in charge- if I had there's no way I could apologize enough for what they are doing in the names of "Freedom", "Democracy" and "National Security" today. The hypocrisy of this bunch would be laughably ridiculous were it not so serious and affecting so many people's lives - and being responsible for the deaths of so many thousands.

The saddest part is that our country's shameful acts actually make matters far worse.
Our country's good name is daily being besmirched and smeared by one shameful scandal after another by this group of thugs - there is no other name for them. It is becoming quite clear that the US, under this administration, is now egregiously guilty of what we used to term 'disappearing people' when done by other countries. The names of "Nazi Germany", "Russia", "Argentina", and yes, even "Iraq" under Saddam Hussein come quickly to mind.

And, I am ashamed for the sake of my country. There can be no justification for the shameful acts now being perpetrated by our US government. The ends can NEVER justify the means.

    I shudder to think of some of the responses your post will engender from the acerebral marching morons who continue to slavishly follow the current gang of rogues as they lead us to ruin. "My country, right or wrong" has never been a more toxic and destructive philosophy.

    As for the idea that this is all a nightmare from which we will collectively awaken, I really think that it's going to take some other nation giving us a heavy dose of our own interventionist and warlike medicine to make us see the error of our ways. It may not happen in our lifetime, but just as the Roman Empire collapsed from within due to its own hubris and complacency, we too are on our last legs as a world power. Let's hope we collectively get our heads out of our asses before we reach "critical mass."
